DEADLINE FOR INPUT ON MOOSE, WOLF HUNT CHANGESJanuary 11, 2016
QUEEN’S PARK – The deadlines to comment on proposed changes to provincial regulations regarding moose and wolf and coyote hunting are fast approaching, Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli stated today.
Nipissing residents have until next Monday, January 18 to post their responses.
The proposed moose hunting changes are the final phase of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry’s Moose Project. Under this proposal, the proposed new firearm season dates would be from the Saturday closest to October 22 to the following Friday, in any year.
The proposed wolf and coyote hunt changes would mean that, beginning in 2017, hunting in northern Ontario would be allowed with a small game licence, establishing an annual harvest limit of two wolves per season. Coyote harvest would no longer be limited in northern Ontario, but there would be no changes to current restrictions in Algonquin Provincial Park and surrounding townships.

“Hunting is an important wildlife management tool in our province and has a significant impact on the Northern economy and our way of life. It’s important to make your voice heard regarding these proposals,” said Fedeli.
